    Ok, we've ruled out electrical, water, air, food, and pasture. Our last options are paranormal and predator.
    The snake nest idea sounds very probable. I'd search for it, and lay down moth balls or some other form of snake deterrent. Call your lcal game warden, look into what animals are in your area.

    Id also google your place, talk to a medium, and ask around to see about paranormalty.

    Hmm, I don't think snakes would do it. We get a lot of them around here and the horses don't seem to care. I was leading a horse and happened to look down to see a big snake just a foot or so away, and the horse didn't even take notice.

    I would say it's some sort of predator that's been leaving scent around the property. I too am quite curious now...

    I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your horse. :(

    I find it very strange how you said the shortest period someone lived there was 2 days and the longest was 1 year. Really, who would live only 1 year on such a beautiful property? You would think at least a few prior owners would of lived on this farm a while(at least a few years). And who would buy such a property to sell it 2 days later? I also find it very odd that the prior owners hung up the phone on you when you asked about it. Why would they hang up on you, unless they know something you don't. And all the neighbors that will also evade the questions.....

    You have ruled out everything you could, logically. Like someone said, wildlife could be the issue, but why would the horses react the same way in the barn with the doors shut and keep on acting up all night? And your dogs are also acting strange.... I really hope you find what is causing this to happen!

    Sadly I probably will move Roxie to my sister's property for her well being, plus she won't be alone in the pasture. She can be with Term again until things are normal

    Snakes have never bothered my horses before but I'll try the mouth balls. I also called the game warden a few minutes ago and they said the biggest predators are coyotes, hawks or owls.

    It probably wouldn't hurt to try to get in touch with a local medium or paranormal group.

    Though I am a believer in the supernatural, I'm usually one to believe that 99% of the time, there is a perfectly normal natural explanation for most things.

    The biggest indicator for me is how often this farm has changed hands. Sure, it's common in most places to find a person or two who only lived there for a short time, but for it to happen to almost every owner. That really makes me wonder.

    Oh, and if you do get a medium or someone out, do NOT let them hold a seance or try to contact/communicate with whatever is there (if there is anything) beyond just talking and trying to catch EVPs or video evidence.

    I'm so sorry for your loss.

    How strange...I'm not usually one to jump to paranormal conclusions, but this is just weird. I'm subbing, this is just too much for my curiosity.

    It does all seem very strange.
    I am a believer in spirits, I have had experience with several but non of them have ever been evil. Certainly one old boy who visited me was a horse saver and never frightened them. On the other hand another place the spirit was disgruntled rather than evil and one of the dogs hated him. She would stick to me like glue and was always unhappy when we visited the place.

    I would search the history of the place, find out what happened there years ago. As said it might be a burial ground, or something really bad occurred there.
    The reaction of the neighbours seems strange too.

    See if you can find a genuine psychic, there are many fraudulent ones around so be careful. Do not tell them anything other than you have had a 'feeling' Don't tell about the horses or the dogs, when they ask questions or pose an answer, keep a poker face, don't give anything away. Not easy to do but needs to be done or the false psychic will read your reactions and tell you what you want to hear and not what went on.

    I wish I could visit, I wouldn't be able to tell you what happened but I sure would know of there were spirits around.

    Call TAPS! Haha, I'm a believer in paranormal.

    You said the horse that passed was a rescue? What kind of condition was he in? The paranormal can have a pretty substantial effect on the weak or the old. That could explain why he passed but your other horses haven't.

    I've seen more than a few stories where animals are affected by paranormal things to the point they get sick or lose hair and other things.

    How long have you lived here, and have you had any odd feelings or anything of that nature in your house?
